Sea Urchin Fertilization Laboratory
Vic Vacquier developed a handout for university students on how to observe sea urchin fertilization in a university lab class setting. All that is needed are sea urchin gametes, a microscope, a few solutions and this handout. The handout works well for both 1 or 2 three hour labs. The student reads through the handout, makes the simple observations, and does the simple, direct experiments to gain insight into the fascinating process of sperm-egg interaction and egg activation.


Ocean Life Class for K-5

Class objective is to instill a sense of wonder and curiosity at the diversity of invertebrate life and forms in the ocean.

The worksheets that follow are suggested to be used in a class involving live marine invertebrates purchased from marine animal suppliers.

The discussions and activities depend upon the facilities available and the area of study of the host aquarium and lab.


Ocean Life Introduction

The oceans are rich with life, this sheet shows common marine invertebrates.
